Emma was a woman of service to her family, church, and community. She was an active member of St Mary Catholic Church, Millersville, OH and the Rosary Altar Society. Her strong dedication to the Lord was her guiding center which resulted in her active formation of the Catholic faith in her seven children as well as her extended family. Her prayer life reached beyond her family and community, praying for others around the world. She was dedicated to her family, encouraging them in their studies, making their clothes, growing and preserving their food, and playing an active role in decisions to manage the family farm. Emma was also noted for her outstanding cookies, pies, noodles, and beautiful gladiolas. She was a lifelong learner with much wisdom to share.

A Mass of Christian Burial for immediate family was held on March 2, 2022, at St Mary Catholic Church, Millersville, OH with Fr. Scott Woods and Fr. Tim Kummerer presiding. Burial was at St Mary Cemetery, Millersville, OH.
